Upgrading from i7 950 to i7-3770K performance difference? - Page 2

post #11 of 28
an i7 @ 4ghz should give the same performance as a 3770k at stock. but if u can sell your current system, then id say upgrade to ivy for better futureproofing
post #12 of 28
I am thinking about the exact same thing. I'm running a i7 950 stable at 4,2 ghz on a Asus P6X58D-E MB. I only use my PC for games (FPS).

If there is not much performance to gain by upgrading to a Ivy 3770K (or even a i5 3570K), I'm down to few reasons for upgrading:

1. Newer chipset support Trim on SSD while running Raid (I have 3 Intel-SSD's running Raid0).
2. Better MB layout / Bigger MB (E-ATX og XL-ATX) I could need some more space/ports (PCI-e and SATA)
3. Good SATA III controller. Actually I did a test on a Gigabyte x58 MoBo: Intel SATA II outperformed Marwell SATA III! A new MB should give me future support, when my older Intel SSD's are due for change.

Can't think about anything else. Maybe just for fun? USB 3 i dont need.

I really dont know. I want to build new rig, but I guess it's just stupid. Damn the fast-pace computerdevelopment!!

#1 has been fixed by the newer RST drivers
#3 Everyone knows Marvell 9128 (and 9128 and its derivatives only) runs like crap. I've done tests on my mobo with modded BIOS and it was just on par with the ICH. That said, if you have Gigabyte's newer mobos like X58A-OC or G1's they have Marvell 9182: same controller but wired to PCIe x4 there you have some nice performance.

What do you mean? You need a 7-series chipset for trimsupport on raid, right?!? Am I mistaken?

No, but you will need modded BIOS with 11.5 RAID ROM and latest RST 11.5 drivers.

If you have a Gigabyte mobo you can find modded BIOS on Tweaktown forums.

Have nothing useful to post except to say that this is the best upgrade advice I've seen for some time on this forum. Logic. Thank you. So much.

Yeah. Personally my setup is still doing great for anything I throw at it, and that is with the CPU @3 GHz.

I always see people saying ''not worth going from i7 920 to 3770, vice versa''

/
I went from i5 760 3.9 ghz to i7 3770 non k. i5 760 is basically same as i7 without HT

In BF3 performance with 64 players was like 50% more with 64 players.. in the WHOLE map.. could be even like up to 80%
and in all games frames are much more smooth, only for the smoodness allready I would went to the new i7 series! And Its much more advanced in terms of performance and wattage

its basically the feeling I had from Core 2 duo 3ghz to core 2 Quad > i5 760 vs i7 3770. Just like BAM, new dimension you step in, even the feeling in windows is MUCH snappier, ofcourse with SSD as well.
I never would go back the old platform!!! Even not if the i5 was at 6ghz

It's all relative to usage, for sure.

Since Crysis 3 has come out, I already feel like my rig is not up to scratch. 2600K at 4.5Ghz teamed with a 680 GTX.

My solution?

Avoid Crysis 3. lol
